This lecture will outline the history of atmospheric temperatures in both the recent and distant past. Professor Huppert will explain the definite connection between the carbon dioxide and methane content of the atmosphere with the average global surface temperature. He will present a range of predictions of the Earth’s future climate, as well as practical ways of restoring atmospheric balance, including storage and chemical reaction. He will describe in detail some of the science behind these processes, as well as the range of reactions of politicians to these ideas.
